In the interview with the Bombay Times, Priyank talked about developing feeling for Benafsha inside the Bigg Boss house, and yet keeping quiet. He said, “I had met Ben through common pals. We became good friends and I got to know her better during Bigg Boss. Both of us were single when we entered the house. We felt a strong connection, especially after I re-entered the house post my eviction. We developed feelings for each other, but didn’t want to make any commitment without being sure. Once out in the real world, we spent a lot of time together and realised that we were in love. It has been exactly two-and-a-half years since Ben and I are together. She gives me a sense of completeness and we fit together like missing pieces of a puzzle.”

Priyank also talked about why the couple took so much time to come out in open about their relationship. He said, “We took a lot of time to work on the relationship and didn’t make it public earlier because we wanted our space and privacy. Also, in the current situation, there is a lot of uncertainty about the future and that made us realise that life is too short to keep something so beautiful private anymore.” (Recommended Read: Shweta Bachchan Nanda Shares An Old Picture With Abhishek Bachchan, Their Resemblance is Uncanny)

For the uninitiated, Priyank had surprised his fans by revealing his lady love's name amidst the monotony of Coronavirus, making his fans happy. On April 4, 2020, Priyank had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a picture with Benafsha and had written, "Confirmation", followed by a heart emoji. Benafsha had also shared the same picture on her Instagram handle and had captioned it as "Can’t nobody keep me like you. Call it unconventional. My love is habitual!" Take a look at it below:

Last year, in an interview with SpotboyE, Priyank had opened up on his dating rumours with Benafsha. He had said, "You know what! I have just started keeping quiet on all such matters. People keep linking me with some or the other girl. So I would just say: Keep guessing because I have stopped sharing my personal life. Yes, I have made it a question mark for everyone. With my past experience, I have realised that I should not talk about my private life. In fact, I was a true believer of this until I did Splitsvilla, where fans got to see my love angle (Divya Agarwal). But other then that, I have never spoken about my personal life. If you see my Roadies audition also, I never revealed my girlfriend's name till the time the fans and media found out.” (Don't Miss: Karan Johar's Kids, Yash And Roohi Johar Troll His Dancing Skills And He Is Now Talentless Mr Johar)
